ASHWELL'S new state-of-the-art dental surgery opened last week in a move to give users the best possible service.
The refurbishment of Ashwell Dental Surgery which cost £300,000 and has not only moved the practice into the 21st century but is also helping ease problems in the NHS.
MP Oliver Heald, who reopened the premises, said: "The area has been desperately short of NHS dental services, so this is an investment that I welcome greatly.
"The new facilities are state-of-the-art, but the best thing is they are still offering NHS treatment."

Mr Shah believes that the improvements, that took almost five months to complete, will offer patients a better service.
He said: "Our patients will have a much better experience as a result of the improvements. So far they have been extremely pleased with the new surgery."
Commenting on the NHS situation Mr Shah said: "The surgery remains open to all. Most people who have spent this amount of money would be go down the private route - but we believe the NHS is important.
